Substituting liquor for steak a poivre

I'm making steak a poivre from the Essential New York Times Cookbook. We've realized that the cognac we have is pretty expensive - can we substitute sherry?

Funnily enough, that's actually a recipe I came up with! And yes, dry sherry or brandy would be just fine.

As the pepper will dominate the sauce, first choice is the brandy family ... Cognac, armanac, brandy- then try a non smoky whiskey (scotch), and of course dry sherry. But since you will only be using a little - use the expensive stuff. (easy for me to say.... but the taste will be "ahhhhhh")
